    It was very easy. They just ask you basic questions like your availability and how much you expect to make. They ask about your previous work history etc. they just have to ask these questions but they don't care who works there as long as they get paid

    Reasons for Declining

    It is an awful work environment. More for high schoolers who are looking for experience and money but don't actually want to work

    Customer Service Desk Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview Details

    In order to apply you must go online to put in your application and there is a character test (not sure if that's what they call it). It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete all of it. I was called in for an interview by HR. She was not real easy to get a hold of to schedule an appointment. I had my first interview with her which went well. I then had a second interview with the manager. The interview process was relaxed and did not take long. The office was clean and neat and the staff was nice but it was getting close to the holidays and you could tell they were overwhelmed by the increase in business, staff, hiring, etc. I knew within a couple of days that I was hired. When I came in they had a group of probably 8 of us. They assigned positions randomly without any rhyme or reason or any regards to what we had done in our past.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kmart in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for an open position through indeed. The application process is seriously the most tedious part. It took me about an hour to complete the application and if you are applying for different positions, you'll have to take the assessment each time. Got a call back a couple of days later to come in for an interview the following Monday. The interview was very easy...extremely easy!! I arrived 10 minutes early so I went to the service desk and told them that I was there for an interview. They told me to go back to the electronics department to wait for the HR to come get me. After like 2 minutes she came to get me and took me into her office where the interview began. She proceeded to tell me about the position and all that it in-tells. She was really nice, she spent about 15 minutes going over the position and the requirements and asked me if I had any criminal history on my background. After all of that she finally asked me tell me about yourself (Thats the only interview question that I was asked) and is my availability open. After all of that she told me that I would be getting an offer letter through email and I would general have 0 contact with her anymore because everything would come through brassring! On my way home I received the offer email and I accepted. As soon as I got home I received the background and drug screening email. I decided to do the drug screen that day so I could get it out of the way because you only have 48hrs to do it plus it takes like a week for the company to get your results back. The following Monday I received an email with my onboard registration and my I-9 papers. It took me about an hour to do! Now Im just waiting for a call back or email to see when I can start my first day.

    Interview Details

    Best way is to know someone already working in the company. Easy interview. Part time position so does not require any advance degrees or even a high school diploma. The level of training fluctuates, it depends on the person training you. Be sure you're ready to work and learn to be a self motivated person.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a seasonal position at Kmart and Sears. I received a phone call from the Regional Manager a day or two later about setting up an interview. She asked me if I could interview that day or the next day. I was told to go to the store location at the interview time and ask for the manager. When I arrived for the interview, I ended up meeting with the Softlines Manager. He was very nice and he asked me about four of five questions. He offered me the job after the interview.
